Is God Working Through Me?

Is God Working Through Me?

by Janis Cox


I read an interesting statement in The Prayer of Jabez?

If God is working through us that doesn’t mean in association with us.

Through is an interesting term. It reminds me of the scripture in Zechariah where we are told that not by might nor by power but by My Spirit will God work through us.

Our God specializes in working through normal people who believe in a supernatural God who will do this work through them.

This will be my path for the next months – to spend more time in prayer – as I beg for more influence and responsibility so I can honour God.

If I want to be a follower of Jesus I need to trust Him to do miracles; to open doors; to make divine appointments.

So I am praying and believing.

You will know beyond doubt that God has opened heaven’s storehouses because you prayed.

I would love to pray with you or for you.
Please contact me at Under the Cover of Prayer.

Here is a wonderful reminder that God will open heaven’s gates if we pray and believe.

Here are a few words from this song Did You Feel the Mountains Tremble? by Matt Redman.

Fling wide, you heavenly gates
Prepare the way of the risen Lord

And here is the video.


Lord, I know that I have to allow you to work through me. For that reason I give you my whole life to do as you wish. Lead me, guide me, push me. Open those gates and may I expand my territory for You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
